Chernokids (eng subs)

Influenced by Paul Fusco’s images of the children of Chernobyl, Chernokids was to show “resilience; the way people bounce back after a trauma,” This is demented on a whole new level. Like a car crash & you can’t look away.  Best enjoyed in full screen!

Salvador Dali on “What’s My Line?”


This ten minute clip is drawn from the famous 1950s game show, and it’s quite surreal. I don’t use the word surreal loosely: the special guest is Salvador Dali.  This is just about the best thing ever.  I was definitely born too late.   Classic!
